English Tourism Week: 9 lovely day trips within a short train ride from Manchester including Hebden Bridge
From beautiful historic market towns to stunning hikes through the countryside, there are all sorts of days out within a short train ride from Manchester.
English Tourism Week 2023 is a great excuse to head out for the day and explore some of the country - and it’s perfectly possible to do that if you live in Manchester while also leaving the car at home.
We’ve had a look at the train network heading out of the city’s major travel hubs such as Manchester Piccadilly and Victoria and have pulled together a wealth of different days out which are all in easy reach of the train and shouldn’t take much more than an hour to get to.
It’s an eclectic list too, with the trains connecting Mancunians to everything from beautiful historic market towns to villages perched in stunning countryside begging to be explored on foot.
So whether you want a day enjoying some good food and a bit of shopping, a cultural one delving into centuries of the north of England’s past or an intrepid one soaking in some of the country’s most spectacular landscapes, we’ve got you covered. Here are nine places within 60 minutes or just over that on the trains out of Manchester.
